Southern Breakers took on Murray Bridge at Breaker Park. Breakers wanted to have a good result for the last home game of the season and got to play in front of a big crowd that gathered after the junior games.
With at least six regular players unavailable it was a good chance for some of the players that hadn't been getting much game time to show their ability. Breakers took control of the game and were creating plenty of attacking runs.
Polson created the first scoring opportunity with a solo run and cracking shot that the keeper pushed wide. Breakers solid defensive line of Coles, Peters, Warren, Church and Wackerman repelled most attacks by Bridge.
Houghton was doing his usual hard work up front and provided the assist for the first goal from yet another perfectly placed corner kick finding Coles in a forward position ready to crack a header into the net. Cooper was next to hit the back of the net with a cracking shot, but celebrations were cut short as the referee disallowed the goal for a free kick. Captain Kenagy popped up with the team’s second goal through a well placed header from yet another Houghton corner kick.
Peruvian import Henry came off the bench and straight into the action when he was on hand to tap in his first goal for the club. Breakers kept up the pressure and once again the creator Houghton battled through the defensive line, fired in a shot that the Murray Bridge defence couldn't clear and ended up putting in an own goal.
Breakers went into half time 4 nil up. Houghton and Polson teamed up to set up Mogs for a goal to start the second half. Not long after Mogs put away his second goal from yet another Houghton assist and then it was Cooper to provide a ball to Houghton to get himself on the score sheet. Mogs brought up his hat trick with a cheeky tap and Polson blasted a shot into the net to score the last goal of the match.
Breakers ended up comfortable 9 nil winners to sit in second place on the table. The amazing stat for the game was from Aaron Houghton who assisted in 7 of the goals as well as scoring one himself. This Saturday Breakers travel to Glenunga to take on Old Ignations with a 1pm kick off.
